All that green has turned golden and dry and the deep green of the Coast Live Oak trees really stands out.
It has not been too hot yet but the fire crews are all tuned up and we fervently hope that they don't stay very busy this year.
We ate at a steakhouse in the quaint little downtown and then filed into the smoky casino for the show. Luckily there was no smoking allowed in the theater. Paul Rodgers, of Bad Company and other bands, known as 'The Voice', still has it going on at age 60. It was a great show, though of course too short for all the fans. Grant and his bandmates cover several of his songs in their playlist, such as "All Right Now" and "Bad Company". It's great to see live music any time, especially great rock and roll! Grant and his bandmates have a chance to play at the County Fair this year. He should hear in a few days if they made the cut. It would be great fun to see them sing these songs in the open air bandstand at the Fair!
